The opening production will be:

Yellow Icing

Writer: Rory Calland

Director: Ollie Norton-Smith

Assistant Director: Elena Brearly

Producer: Virginia Saul

Harper struggles to appreciate the world in her time; destined to be an explorer perhaps she was born too late and the earth is now shrunken and shrivelled. Around her is only decay, the world is beyond its prime yet people still absurdly cling to existence.

Joined by Captain Robert Scott, Harper simply desires to catalogue the animals on her beach, but her family is looming above her.

Please note:

  • This production contains some strong language and scenes of a violent nature.
